Burnley Independent Group 11, non-aligned 2. East Lancashire mill town in the Pennines; site of the first BNP breakthrough in local elections in 2002, but they have now departed and it is now a Labour/Liberal Democrat battle.
11 Labour councillors including the Leader moved to Independent in November 2023. The Green Party held Trinity at a byelection on 26 October. The Burnley and Padiham Independent group was wound up in August 2023, and former member Charlie Briggs (Gannow) joined the Labour Party in September.
